    I started at GF (because I found out I was gluten intolerant). I fought it for a long time. Tried to just have a little bit of bread here and there. Mistake, but I was denial. Then I went to GF products. Then I went to Atkins. Then I came here. Then I ditched dairy (turns out, just as my doc said would probably happen, body doesn't like dairy either). Then I trimmed down the nuts. Then, I findally worked on the fruit (crazy cravings with fruit). Now I'm working on the psychology of my underlying issues. It's a process. Some people can just dive right in. Wish I were one of them! I got to MDA from a girl on a PCOS site I visit occasionally. She posted for well over a year before I was ready. I'm glad she didn't give up. I might have forgotten and not made my way this direction.

    Yes I have a similar story, I started at Atkins years ago then came here even though my chiro would have preferred full on paleo. After 15 months, I am finally ready to let go of the last of it-processed meats, dairy, commercial mayo & dressings and most of all artificial sweeteners.

    The people who can just go Paleo and never look back amaze me.

    Actually, people who can just drop everything at once and go paleo don't amaze me as much as the people who really have to work at change! I figure people who don't have to work at changing either really don't care about the taste of food, or they don't have families that they have to contend with, or they have a ton of social support, or they have plenty of time and resources for cooking.

    ^This. That said, I would guess there are very few of us who have not been overweight/unhealthy/food sensitive/whatever for a while now and tried all kinds of different approaches. I think those starting out today for the first time are lucky with all the primal information out there. Way back in the day it was "Hmmm...grapefruit or cabbage soup...great diet options..." :/

    I'm glad to see I'm in such great company with a bunch of other food addicts. lol

    I just want to say that I have been a very good girl so far today. I stayed off MDA during my morning classes. :P

    Made it through the afternoon classes without MDA as well. Of course classes were only 27min as opposed to 43min on a normal day.

    OK confession time...One week ago I started a secret whole30. I gave up everything that I listed on the previous page. I didn't want to tell anyone what I was doing because everyone was advising a moderate approach. That makes sense for most people I guess, but I have been Primal for over 15months and I was ready to go full on Paleo. I was also afraid that I would fail.

    Observations so far. I've dropped 7 lbs. (Yes it is weight that I had already lost a few times.)
    I did not die from lack of artificial sweetener. I've found a few teas that have a natural sweetness due to spices.
    My bad leg is not blown up to twice the size of the other anymore. In the morning it looks almost normal (dumping nitrates?).
    Emotions stable. Urge to binge lessened. Better sleep.
    Primal since 9/24/2010
